January is one of my favorite months because it presents such a distinct dichotomy of ideas. It is at once a time of great hope, when we set to renew wishes and plans, as well as the heart of the winter when we in the Northeast are surrounded by darkness, bitter cold and snowfall. My birthday also comes in January, on the 4th, and this coming one will be extra special because I'll be heading down to play a show in Atlanta with the Indigo Girls at a benefit for 20 YEARS of Southerners On New Ground (SONG).
A few days later, we'll head to Washington state for three shows in Bellingham, Tacoma, and Edmonds. Check out the calendar page for more info.
Have a happy and healthy holiday season, and I hope to see you at these shows!

I'm tremendously honored to be included amongst some amazing violin talent in the new book, Discovering Rock Violin, by Chris Haigh. The book features all sorts of fun and interesting information on the history of violin in rock and alternative music, including breakdowns of riffs, styles, and techniques that helped transform the instrument.
The solo in HUNG's "Desert of Sad" was also picked as the #17 rock violin solo of all time!
